Rising Incidence of Chronic Diseases in the United States and the Resultant Need to Cut Costs Create Demand for Personal Health Records
The ability of a PHR to be interoperable with health monitoring devices that relay personal health data in real time and the increase in data exchange between individuals and healthcare providers has made the U.S. web-based PHR market increasingly attractive. As higher numbers of patients report one or more chronic conditions, the need for healthcare services will grow. However, these medical cases are expensive to treat, require multi-specialist care coordination, and ongoing monitoring of changing health data. Due to the fragmented nature of the U.S. healthcare system and the lag in electronic coordination of care, people with multiple chronic diseases frequently receive disjointed or duplicated care, which raises the cost of treatment, says the analyst of this research service. In an effort to contain costs, healthcare companies are gravitating toward information technology.
PHR vendors and implementers have to increase the awareness of end users to dispel fears about privacy violations and help consumers understand the benefits of using a PHR. They will have to invest money, expertise, and time to launch consumer marketing and communication campaigns to complement the disparate business-to-business (B2B) communications, which are currently the norm. The number of mobile health offerings, the scope of platforms that enable them, and the number of health industry participants that offer them encourage market growth, observes the analyst.
